One of the biggest luxuries of homeschooling is we get to set our own schedule. Both Baba and Rudy love doing school (Rudy will spend hours writing her name and Mom over and over and over) so it is some what of a punishment to have to take days off. We decided that we'd switch to a more year round school calendar, our shorter summer break would allow us to take more time off during the tradition school year. Currently we are on our summer break. We scheduled 4 weeks off. We are on week 3 off and they couldn't take it any more! I was printing skip counting worksheets to use when school started and they've spent the morning skip counting.
Which means, I have to spend the afternoon redoing the curriculum I planned for the first week of school. Sigh. I guess that's the price I pay for getting my kids excited about learning.
Of course, Panthalassa had to join in the fun. She loves books. They are very tasty and fun to throw, but a few (or a lot) damaged books is a small price to pay for early literacy. That's what I tell myself anyway.
